Hi Matt,Could it be that you have to load the module at boot from loader.conf?
Yes, you are right. After kldload'ing the ehci driver manually, it
automatically detects my SanDisk USB flash drive. I proceeded to
installation and got successful with it. However when booting after
installation, it stops somewhere while mounting the device. Below is
the error encountered.
Mounting root from ufs:/dev/da0s1a
no disk named 'da0s1a'
ffs_mountroot: can't find rootvp
root mount failed: 6
Manual root filesystem specification:
<fstype>:<device> Specify root (e.g. ufs:da0s1a)
? List valid disk boot devices
panic Just panic
abort Abort manual input
Possibly valid device for 'ufs' root:
"cd" "md" "ad" "acd" "mfs"
Here, I typed "?" where it doesn't show any "da" device
I know I had to fiddle with this when I set up my system to boot from a
vinum mirror volume. Look in /boot/defaults/loader.conf for options and
make your own adapted loader.conf in /boot.
